Horrible, funny lies we tell our kids

My DD (5) is sick and on antibiotics. She hates the way they taste and has absolutely refused to take them. I've tried everything- bribery, threats, mixing them with juice. She HAS to take this medicine to get well. Tonight I got fed up and told her if she didnt take her medicine the doctor would have to give her shots in her eyeballs. She took the medicine.

I know it's awful. Have you ever told horrible lies to your children?

*edit*
Before anybody gets upset and starts berating me as a bad mother for telling her this, I'm also the kind of mom that when my kids are in the car they inevitably ask me where we're going and i inevitably reply, " I'm taking you guys to the dump so I can go to Walmart and buy some new kids." My kids understand my humor and gave a pretty developed sense of humor themselves. Even the five year old.

No. The truth is often scary enough.

Lmbo...this was absolutely hilarious. You know she's going to bring this up when she's an adult, right?

I've told a few over the years - nothing comes to mind specifically though...  Yours is quite funny...
